Go back to the origins of Mesoamerica and of Mexican culture as you admire the world's largest collection of pre Colombian art, accompanied by a guide specialist in art and history.
Guided Visit of the National Anthropological Museum
The tour meets at the main entrance to the Anthropological Museum, to begin the Origins of Mesoamerican Culture guided tour.
Mexico City's National Anthropological Museum is the most important museum in Latin America. More than two million people visit every year to see up close the biggest collection of prehispanic art in the world.
We'll spend 3 hours following in the footsteps of prehispanic societies, and get up to date on the most recent archaeological excavation and ethnographic studies. We'll head back 10,000 years as we admire an impressive collection of day to day objects from Mexico's first inhabitants, as well as symbolic elements from their cultural and religious ceremonies.
You'll be amazed by the famous 'Sun Stone' popularly known as the Aztec Calendar, and we'll discover the secrets it's said to hold regarding the origin of the universe. We'll also see reconstructions of tombs and temples from the ancient Aztec and Mayan civilisations and remains from the Zapotec, Toltec, Teotihuacan and Mexica cultures.
Having learnt about the cultural and artistic heritage of Mexico, you'll have free time to pass through the museum at your own pace.
If you would like to tour with the little ones, you can book the children's tour. With this option, the youngest visitors will have to search all the rooms for the symbols they have found in the inverted umbrella at the beginning of the route. They'll learn about the history of the settlements of America in a fun and educational way.
The route will pass through the Teotihuacán, Mexica, Gulf Coast, Maya and, finally, the mosaic of human diversity.
